Authorities are asking for the public’s assistance following a disturbing act of animal cruelty in Parry Sound, Ontario. The OPP say that shortly after 5:00 p.m. Monday evening, witnesses saw an orange and white cat be tossed from the passenger side of a moving vehicle on Parry Sound Road. The small town is about two hours north of Toronto.
As a result of being thrown, the cat was launched into a concrete retaining wall and sadly succumb to its injuries. It was wearing a pink and yellow collar with no tag. Witnesses say the suspect was driving a dark-coloured Honda.
Shockingly, this disturbing act isn’t the only one of its kind this year. Erika Paul of the B.C. SPCA told CBC is it not uncommon for cats to get dumped in this manner, although it rarely happens in daylight.
Back in June, a witness in Langford, B.C. witnessed a man drop a sick and ageing cat out of the window of his car. Later that month, a woman driving through Simcoe, Ontario was credited for saving a kitten who she saw dropped from a car window into the middle of a busy street.
Luckily, both of those stories had a happy ending, with the cats surviving their injuries and eventually going into proper care. However, for this most recent case, we can only hope that justice gets served.
"I'm going to say it again, and again and again, because it makes me so happy," said Crombie at a press conference. "We will all be eligible for the vaccine as of 8 a.m. tomorrow."
Residents can book their vaccine by visiting Peel region's vaccine website and clicking "book appointment" after 8 a.m., Crombie said. The mayor also highlights the importance of the change by explaining that Peel's non-hotspot areas still had higher case counts hospitalization rates than other designated hot spots in the province.
Currently, all adults over the age of 18 who live in an Ontario hotspot are eligible to book a vaccine via the provincial booking system.
